Saturday, February 9th, 1861

To day we are still at work on the mill house putting up weatherboarding. Bill ground 15 bushels of corn. weather cloudy & occasional showers of rain until at night when it poured down in torrents swelling the creek to a fearful highth & putting us in great fear of the levy. I loaned Mr. Leaverton my wheat fan.
